PUBLIC IMPOSTORS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 10 April 1875

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not necessarily endorseo the opinions of our correspondents. TO T'PE EDITOR 0F. TIIE, MERURY. Sir,-Taking up my subject wheroe I loft. off last week, the result of my investiga tion into the export trade in agricultural implements was as follows: Date. Amt. Date. ,Amt. Date. Amt. 1865 6026 1168 4525 1871 6208 1866 6347 1869 5827 1872 6077 1806 4535 1870 .8220 1873 8143 It is plain from this tableothat our ex port trade has not declined, but, on the contrary, has' slightly increased. Weo also see that by comparing the exports' of 1873 with the import, that the one considerably exceeded the other. Importedi £.5812 worth; exported, £8143 wortli. So that in 1878 our own manufacturers not only had to supply the entire home demand, but had. to make up the difference between these two amounts.

SCIENTIFIC. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 10 April 1875

SCIENTIFIC. MODERN science is demolishing the stereotyped records of barbarism and antiquity. Bishop USHER assigns the creation of the world, to the year 4004 before CHRIST, and Bishop HALES wouldlaveiis sbelieve tliit it occurred 5411 anterior to the Advent; therefore, according to the last mentioned author,' this globe has, been in existence 7286 years; while, according to the former, the world is only 5871 years old. But what does science reveal? Let us hear the testimony of the Rocks; and give heed to the evidences of Geology. A Dr. ALFRED RUSSELL WALLACE has been fossicking for 'fossils, and the results of' his researches put an ex tinguisher over all previous data. He fixes the bronze age'in' Europe at 4000 years ago:. the stone ;age of the Swiss Lake dwellings at -7000 years: he tells us that some burned bricks, exhumed from Nile alluviumni at'a d'epth of sixty feet, indicate an intiquity of 20,000 years: while another one, which has been discovered at a depth of seventy two ...
